Become a Member of Georgia 811

Georgia 811 Membership is required for any Facility owner or operator. Defined by the Georgia Underground Facility Protection Act under § 25-9-3. Definitions (15) a “Facility owner or operator” means any person or entity with the sole exception of a homeowner who owns, operates, or controls the operation of a utility facility.

Member Benefits

By removing the burden of direct contact from excavators and homeowners to facility service providers, Georgia 811 provides a streamlined free service that results in increased instances of notification before digging. What does that mean for members? It means more opportunities to mark facilities before digging occurs, resulting in fewer damages.

Georgia 811 members receive notification when excavation is planned in their service area and members are then able to coordinate locate technicians to properly mark their underground facilities. This helps excavators avoid facility damage and thus costly facility repairs. In addition to facilitating the notification process for members, Georgia 811 also provides training opportunities and support via the Customer Connections and Liaison Departments.

What should I expect when I become a member of Georgia 811?

Traffic Members
On September 1, 2022, the Georgia Underground Facility Protection Act (GUFPA) was changed to include a requirement for mandatory Georgia 811 membership for local governing authorities that own traffic control devices and traffic management systems. To provide adequate time for initial budgeting and staffing, the starting date for enforcement of the requirement to locate these facilities is January 1, 2024.
O.C.G.A.§ 25-9-3 provides the following definition of these facility types.

If your local government owns and/or operates either of the above facility types, please fill out the form below to request a Georgia 811 Member Agreement. The onboarding process for new members takes approximately 90 days, and those governments who complete their membership by January 1, 2024, will be added as Georgia 811 members free of charge. It is recommended that local governments begin the membership process early so that cost estimates can be generated in preparation for the expiration of free membership.

Georgia 811 policy requires an additional membership setup for any Georgia 811 member that has been hired to locate and/or manage Locate Requests for another Georgia 811 member. The additional membership will be set up as a Locate Contractor membership at no additional cost to the member.
